“Not Fun but An Excellent Place to Start your Visit in Israel”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

I am a Holocaust Survivor's daughter and I have visted Yad Vashem three times. In brief it is a very good place to start your visit to Israel as after having visited this amazing memorial you may get a small understanding of why the Jews are as they are and why Israel is such an important place. Nothing can really help you or anyone comprehend the enormity of the evil of the Shoah but it is the best place to come to learn about the biggest genocide in history. Israel really knows how to do good museums. This is probably the best example.

“Overpowering!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

Didn't quite have enough time on our tour for this museum. The children's museum is incredible and so much information at the main museum that you could easily spend a day here.

“Moving”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

Tells the complete story of the Holocaust with multimedia presentations. The audiotape available for rental is superb. The design of the building reflects the subject.
